What is your favorite place to find clothes for children?

I love Scandinavian brands for their cool and practical design. I do a lot of shopping online for the children in places like http://www.latte-mama.com/ and nordickids.co.uk and http://polarnopyret.co.uk/
I also love the Slugs and Snails tights http://slugsandsnails.ie/ and for organic clothing, Kyna: http://www.kynaboutique.co.uk/

What tips would you give to a mom who is trying to remain stylish while raising a family?

Invest in clothes that are easy to wear and wash well, and fabrics that don't wrinkle. If your day consists mainly of going to play groups and crawling arounds kids, you want to be comfortable but still look nice. I tend to wear skinny jeans, fab pair of ankle boots and a plain top or tee with a statement necklace that makes the outfit.

What's one beauty product you would recommend to all moms?

Without a question, the Liz Earle hot cloth and polish! You can use it to your whole face, including the eye area so it takes all make up off super quick! Handy when you are pushed for time!
